"in the furnace that made us"

For Loose Canon Listening Club's first Sunday broadcast, I found inspiration from fellow BFF.fm DJ Michele K-Tel, as well as WNYC's New Sounds. You'll hear instrumental tracks by indie rock super groups (Valley of the Giants, Belle Orchestre), experimentations with American roots music by Jessie Montgomery, Tin Hat Trio and The Hands Free, and some lesser known American classics by Moondog and George Walker. You'll also hear new music from Colleen and Welsh violist Lara Sinnerton. Enjoy.
